Mark A. Daugherty, Ph.D.

Consultant

Dr. Daugherty has over 25 years' experience with advanced energy systems research and development in industrial, national laboratory and academic settings. In March 2005, he began working for the Wisconsin Focus on Energy Program through MSB Energy Associates (in addition to his work for us). He has worked on renewable energy business development for the Wisconsin Focus on Energy Program as a consultant since November 2004, where he conducted a study on Community Wind Business Development from November 2004 through February 2005. From September 2003 to January 2005, Dr. Daugherty was a student at the Chicago Theological Seminary.

From June 2002 to June 2003 he served as President and CEO of Virent Energy Systems, a Madison, Wisconsin based company commercializing a carbon-neutral method for on- demand production of hydrogen and fuel gas. From June 1998 to June 2002, he served in several capacities for DCH Technology, Inc., including Chief Scientist, Chief Technical Strategist and Vice President and General Manager of DCH's fuel cell operations. Dr. Daugherty also served at Los Alamos National Laboratory from 1993 to 1997 as a Principal Investigator on Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs) with industry to develop applications for high temperature superconductors. He also served for six months in 1993 as Manager of R&D Cooperative Programs at Superconductivity, Inc., which is now part of American Superconductor Corp. While at Superconductivity Inc, he led a CRADA program with Oak Ridge National Laboratory addressing high-temperature superconducting magnet design issues.
